payers? >> right now, president obama's propose al would have dividends taxed at ordinary income. that is substantially higher tax rate than the 15% tax rate that toward are enjoying right now. either way, we think that dividend yields will ultimately get dinged. as you mentioned, they have gotten hit. they were down something like 3% and the week ending just before the election. even in anticipation of that. it's hard to know. remember, a lot of dividend stocks are held in tax-exempt accounts, 401(k)s, pensions, endowments, foundations. we are dealing with a subset here. my sense is we will not sie a pull back because a lot of dividends aren't taxed to the extent you would think. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. >> thank you, maria. >> up next on the "wall street journal report," he runs what some think is the strongest bank. what will life be life under president obama's next four [ male announcer ] how can power consumption in china, impactports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price,

? >> if you read about woodward's book on the negotiation, you realize how uncomfortable obama is with anyone not telling them how swell are right he is. anyone who wants lower taxes when you want higher taxes, there is going to be conflict. the president doesn't have the min in his personality for that. but he double counts $2 trillion that is already reduce. he counts 800 billion. of course, that was going to end. money that was going to get spent, yet another asterisk on the -- gerri: you know, i have to tell you, grover, when it comes to the president's budget, it is certainly a motivating trading in the stock market. diminishing peoples for one trip -- four o. one kays. 401ks. will you release any information about that promise? >> obama squeaked by with 2% margin at the presidential level, way down from 7% four years ago. republicans have the house of representatives. they were elected with a written commitment to their constituents, not to me. clearly they are committed to opposing his tax increases. gerri: grover, you're not asking my question. if they were to come to you individually

that what you say is right on, because being on the ground, everybody underestimated the obama ground campaign and the romney people were calling automatically to say, pick up and support our campaign. the obama campaign had offices in the communities for years and i see that you have not voted. if you go and vote, we will take your name off or find a way to get you to the vote and talking about gop tv and politics and i real iz realized they were getting people to the polls and reaching people personally, al. >> right. let me say this, president obama received 12 million less votes this year than he did in 2008. mitt romney got almost 3 million votes less than john mccain did. this election, and you could come up with a lot of arguments as to why mitt romney didn't win. i thought he left it all on the playing field and he did as well as he could give ten circumstances. but the truth of the matter is that we couldn't come up with enough votes to win. >> patrick, it is not just about the candidate or putting a candidate that has a, you know, hispanic last name or the minority on the ti
, they sat it out. so, you know, it was going to be hard, even with the bad economy, for obama to lose. >> i think you're right, paul it wasn't just jobs and the economy, i was climate change. it was reproductive rights. it was gay marriage. there were a lot of issues that have changed in the last ten years and the republicans just did not -- >> the democrat graphic shift, this is a realignment election. it happens once in a generation. in 1980, 91% of the people who voted for the president were white in the united states. last tuesday, it was 72%. that number is going to continue to change. and the republican southern strategy for 50 years, that they have had, which is, reach out to mostly rural, mostly religious, mostly older white people, the math does not add up anymore. barack obama had an 80/40 strategy. you win 80% of the nonwhite vote, which is 30% and you win 40% of the white vote. add that together, you get 52%. that's what he did. >> you know what i thought was interesting, though? it would seem a lot of people are talking about how this election was a wakeup call for the republic
freezes because of obama care. >> right. because according to employers like that, it's going to cost these businesses that much more, albeit with affects only about 3% of businesses. still, obama care is already changing the way those businesses hire. and it's not necessarily for the better. so under obama care businesses with 50 or more employees, they've got a choice. they could either hire full-time employees and give them health insurance or face a fine of $40,000 plus $2,000 for each additional worker past 50. what some businesses are doing is they're limiting schedules for hourly workers to below 30 hours a week. meaning they're moving toward hiring part-time workers instead of full-time ones because it would cost them too much. it's something that's really affecting the service industry meaning restaurants and hotels that rely on a high turnover workforce and typically haven't offered health insurance in the past. darden restaurants, the parent company of olive garden and red lobster, reportedly is trying out a plan to hire part-time workers in some of its markets to replace f
portrayed immigrants. so, we get back. then we have the interview that barack obama gave right before the election, where he said that immigration was essentially his top priority after they saw the budget crisis. host: we can read a little bit of that as well. guest: i was shocked when i saw it. it was amusing, because first it was off the record, then it was on the record. if this is your top priority? health care was his top priority in his first term and you saw how you stack up. i covered the immigration bill going to the senate in 2006- 2007, and it was bigger than i could have ever imagined. it turned into this massive conversation that was emotional and complicated. i thought, wow, that is a big issue. host: what barack obama said in that off the record phone call was that the second thing he was confident would get done next year was immigration reform and that he would be very blunt -- "the big reason i will win a second term is because the republican party has so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. i am fairly confident that
they will come to an agreement. we don't know exactly what the agreement is. i think president obama is right to stand firm, to stand his ground, and say that any deal is going to have to involve increasing the tax rates on the wealthiest americans. and i think that should be the case. and hopefully the republicans will come around to this. but yet i think the republicans have some good ideas -- >> let's talk about that very quickly, because i've got to wrap, oliver. bill kristol as you know, conservative pundit, weekly standard, sort of dropped a bombshell on sunday when he said that republicans need to fall on their sword. that it's -- it's time that, that they agree to what the democrats want. get this over with. the republicans lost the election. i mean is it time for the republicans to sort of come to the table and give a little bit more? >> well, ultimately what the american people are going to observe is the project in negotiation. negotiations about finding joint value. i agree with richard the election is a time for hope and optimism. and that's what we have. hope on the left with re
that barack obama had won the cuban vote in florida. >> right. in florida. and the hispanic vote made up the entire marge nin florida, ended up being 73,000 votes. you can trace it a lot of different ways but that's one of them. that's pretty surprising. what the obama campaign will tell you, not only was their turnout operation every bit as good and better but their message was better. they won this because they appealed to middle class voters. they said who will do a better job taking care of people like you and middle cross voters resoundingly said yes. another thing john was alluding to, when you try to suppress the vote you try to-- it really makes them mad. and that helps to explain why so many people in the counties around cleveland, for example, why african american turnout went up. they stood in line for seven, eight hours, even before election day, in order to make sure that their votes were counted. people were still voting in florida after the president was declared the winner because they wanted to make sure their vote counted. >> schieffer: you know, peggy, there's little d
. >> stephanie: right exactly. let's dive into the right wing world and see what's doing today. how did obama reach out to these demographics? he reached out through student loans, amnesty programs for younger hispanics. he went and birth control is the biggest thing. for sandra flux to have a prime time speaking role would have been absurd. we have women can afford birth control turn out and say i want free birth control. turns out they are a one issue voter. >> stephanie: now they have right wing women to call other women sluts essentially, so that's fair, yeah. >> caller: and again it really is sustained for the voters. it's not introspection. why does the republican party have a permanent gender gap. why did mitt romney just lose 70% of the latino vote when george bush, you know, got 40% just eight or 12 years ago? i mean, there is no introspection about what are we doing wrong? it's obama's suppressing the vote which is what karl rove claims or these women voters are also selfish. that's why they vote democratic. good luck with turning that ship around. >> stephanie: good luck. laura eng
's so bizarre. >> that's bizarre. >> so scary. wow. >>> all right. moving on to some other news on this holiday, monday morning. it is, of course, veterans day, 2012, the federal holiday observed right now. president obama among those marking the actual commemoration yesterday. the 11th day of this 11th month of the year. >> yes, the president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns at arlington national cemetery in virginia, noting that this is the first veterans day in ten years that u.s. troops are not fighting in iraq and that the war in afghanistan is winding down. >> after a decade of war, our heroes are coming home. and over the next few years more than a million servicemembers will transition back to civilian life. they'll take off their uniforms and take on a new and lasting role. they will be veterans. >> and the nfl is honoring veterans with its "salute to service" campaign. for every point scored in a total of 32 games, $100 is donated to charities that help vets and active duty military. >> that's a great to hear. great to hear too. all the veterans out there, we

cliff. can president obama strike a compromise with the right? ed rendell and judd gregg join me on their bipartisan campaign to make that happen. >>> and why you have to be so crazy, florida? can the sunshine state get its political act together? charlie crist will be here with that and much more coming up at the top of the hour. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. starts with ground beef, unions, and peppers baked in a ketchup glaze with savory gravy and mashed russet potatoes. what makes stouffer's meatloaf best of all? that moment you enjoy it at home. stouffer's. let's fix dinner. that moment you enjoy it at home. is bigger than we think ... sometimelike the flu.fer from with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than o
of a deal, something that senior obama adviser, david axelrod, said was a step in the right direction. >> i think the speaker's comments have been encouraging. and obviously, there's money to be gained by closing some of these loopholes and applying them to deficit reduction. so, i think there's a lot of ways to skin this cat, so long as everybody comes with a positive, constructive attitude toward the task. >> axelrod also pointed out that exit polling from the election showed 60% of the american agreed with raising taxes on the highest earners. >>> there's a renewed focus on immigration policy, following a presidential election that saw a growing divide between republicans and the hispanic community. now, two senators on opposite sides of the aisle says they're confident they can push through reform. chuck schumer and lindsey graham are revisiting a plan they proposed together back in 2010. >> i think we have a darn good chance, using this blueprint, to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal -- anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politicall
it the right way, and i want to thank president obama. he has been wonderfully supportive of the examples we provided here. i want to thank secretary shawn don van and his staff and the regional staff for recognizing what is going on here. i want to thank hope sf and all of the partners that we created. you know i was here when the planning grant was given to alice griffin and it wasn't just the celebration of the grant. we went to work. we went to work with the residents, the neighbors. we went to work with our supervisor and i know ms. cohen is out of breath and knows how important this is for her constituents and this district, but most importantly we knew if we didn't just talk the talk, that if we actually took the residents with us, and took all of the talent that we had in the city from the housing authority to our mayor's office of housing, to the redevelopment people, to the private developers, to the staff that has been so diligent, to the private nonprofit sector. the in incredible community based organizations and the bay view y and all these wonderful people that have been
on at once, right? racism is still alive and well. and honestly, don't you think some of the scurries about barack obama is just a scratch away from racism? i mean, people are smart enough to know how not to sound racist. so i think that's part of it. you know, let's remember that gay weightman outwait and we have benefited from that privilege forever and there is a lot of racism were to be done within the gay community. another observation that i would make. it's just a guess. but the president came out -- quickly finish that sentence. but if that makes the headlines tomorrow, i'm going to find out who did it. when a president came out for marriage equality, never paused there. when he came up for marriage equality, at least the polls showed that within the african-american community jumped from like 37% to 54% or something. it was a sizable leap. what i think that answers african-americans have been doing their work on this issue and the president's announcement i think gave them cover, you know, sort of like it is okay to go public with it in a way that perhaps they hadn't before. so i t
things. president obama in his address in the east room did not once mention raising taxes. >> bill: i caught that. i know that. right. >> listen, he campaigned on it. boehner's aides who i've been talking to a lot and i cover obviously, are betting that obama had a campaign message and now it is time for the governing message. you saw that on friday. he did not mention race. paper said we're not going to raise tax rates but we're raise tax revenues. they're saying something very similar. what they're looking like they're going to do is keep rates the same for the time being. take the loopholes close them. some of the deductions, cap deductions. that will bring them into a new year with some revenue and then do a reform of the tax code. that's not easy. we're talking about tough stuff. they're going to have to agree to how much revenue the government should bring in through new tax code. what deductions are worth keeping. i mean -- you have a huge divide on that. monstrous divide. >> bill: just on tha
than john mccain. >> i think what stands out about obama's victory to me is how ugly it was, this was identity politics on steroids telling black people republicans wanted to take away their right to vote and telling women there's war on them that seniors, that paul ryan wants to push granny off the cliff in a wheelchair. this is not the hope and change obama, this was not, there's no red state and blue state obama. he won ugly, it's divisive and if this is the template for how democrats want to win elections going forward to this-- >> and i can tell you what the reaction in the white house would be if they heard you say that, they would say get over it, grow up, this is politics, republicans got a, you know, put on their boxing gloves and get over it. >> oh, yeah. >> paul: so what? you know. >> i won, you know, suck it up. >> i agree. this is the new benchmark the way you win a presidential campaign. no question about it, it's too bad, but that's the way it is. i want to elaborate on one of kim's points. the turnout machine, it did not materialize after the convention in au
and recognize under the law and the lot of people did that. >> i think that is right too. i wonder, i am curious, how did first lady michelle ng obama respond to the news when you talk to her or this was brought to her? >> one of the challenges for those of us writing about the first lady is she is not doing any book interviews at all. i didn't get to talk to her about this but when the article came out, her husband's press secretary was asked about it and said she sounded fascinating. i know her family finds it fascinating and i think it was something they simply -- simply didn't know about. i briefed her staff along the way as i was doing my research and gave her and members of the family, i hope she find it fascinating. >> one thing i did read in the new york times when your article was published, she did have a positive reaction to if, and at some point she even traveled to africa with the children to see the places where the slaves were housed or africans when they were imprisoned warehouse before they were taken in the middle passage and across the sea to the americas. it was very interest
. he will be quarantined for a couple of months. i agree with mark. obama ran a brilliant campaign. he did not have a record. and he succeeded. he did extremely well. and he is right. i would say mitt romney is a good and decent man and who -- would have made a good president. he was not a good campaigner. i think he was weakened by the republican primaries, weakened by the 47%, and in the end he had really bad luck. a week before the election he was ahead in just about all the polls by a lot -- >> no. >> i think it was pre-empted in the last week. i am not sure he would have 1. >> i do not think he was ahead. but when we left here last week, mark and i looked at each other and we said, now we will see whether the vaunted ground game is really their. the vaunted ground game turned out to be a mega ground game. one person i know, this obama operatives sent out an e-mail to her friends and said, don't despair. this was not good, but we registered 10,000 obama voters this big. that is an the question is, can you move the operation to another candidate? to another election, an off-year ele
takers. you see obama learning how to deal with the caucus. let's extend the middle class tax cuts, right now, let's do it. he puts them in a bad position and making it look like, look, middle class, they are not giving you what you need. so learning how to work with them, learning that we have to have some compromise, i see some tea leaves that we may have a better next couple of years. we'll see. >> it will be interesting, if a deal is struck. i don't think it will nearly as good as for republicans as the deal that the president offered them. the grand deal that had been offered before. you know, in some ways i actually think the problem for republicans and for conservatives is that a lot of their ideas and principles have actually won. you know, since ronald reagan we no longer have 70% tax rates on the highest income earners. nobody is arguing for that. we're arguing to go back to 39.6%. on health care reform, the president's health care reform was basically a conservative idea put into the national spotlight by democrats and passed by democrats. education reform. even cap and trade i
